I’m ashamed at how little I write about Murfreesboro. I mean, yeah, it’s not Nashville Proper, but it’s what, 15, 20 minutes away? Some of Nashville’s best bands come from there, and housing is affordable.
In case you’re like me and hadn’t heard about Tour de Fun, it’s a group bike ride/music festival that takes place tomorrow in Murfreesboro. There will be over 40 bands playing at several different locations, and as a group everyone attending the festival bikes to each location. The ride in total should be about 18 miles, which is a pretty decent ride.
The tour starts at noon Murfreesboro Outdoor and Bicycle (MOAB) at 310 N. Maple St. There will be bands and BBQ (!!!). There will be raffle tickets sold there for prizes and whatnot, and that’s where the riding starts. So if previously blogged about Scavenger Hunt doesn’t sound like your thing grab your bike rack and head down to the ‘Boro for some serious rock. Also, I’m a safety nut, so I’d like to suggest you bring a helmet too, because I love you all.
In the meantime check out this mixtape of some of the bands playing.
